1 lb Feta cheese, crumbled
8 oz Cream cheese; softened

To make crust, combine flour, butter, 1 egg and salt in bowl and work

Divide chilled crust in halves. Roll half of pastry almost paper-thin
and fit into 9-inch pie plate. Spread filling into shell. Roll other
half of pastry very thin and place over filling. Trim and crimp
edges. Brush with beaten egg white, if desired, and bake at 325F 45
to 55 minutes, or until pastry is golden. Cut in wedges to serve.
